If desired, we recommend that you set your iron on a heat of level 1 for any tulle netting (usually outside layers), mirror or crystal organza, level 2 and for any satin level 3-4. You are the best one to judge your iron, however, take your time when doing so and the dress will be crisp and wonderful! Any attempt at doing it quick will result in a hole or burn on the dress. For cleaning we advise "Dry clean only". Please do not try to hand wash these items, we all know, it never looks the same and they will shrink and warp. Be kind to the dress and have them professionally dry cleaned so they will last for future wearings.
